Curbside Pick-Up returns

The health and safety of our OC community is our number one priority in our no-contact pick-up service. Before you request an item for pick-up, there are a few steps you should follow to ensure a safe and hassle-free transaction.

  1. Search and Find. Log in to the OC Libraries OneSearch Catalog and search for your item. Ensure it is in our physical collection and available for loan. 
  2. Make Your Request. Curbside pickup requests can be made by calling 360-475-7250 or emailing rjeffrey@olympic.edu.
  3. Wait. It may take up to a week to prepare your item for pick-up depending on its location, destination, and staff availability. Thank you for your patience. To check the status of your holds at any time, log in to your Library Account. 
  4. Get Notice and Follow Instructions. The library will send you an email to your OC email account with specific instructions for pick-up when your item is ready including a link to schedule your pick-up appointment. If you have any questions, please email rjeffrey@olympic.edu.


  • Bring a cell phone to call us when you arrive.
  • Be prepared to verify your identification by providing your name and Student ID number.
  • Pick-ups on the Bremerton campus will take place in the circle drive - there is no need to park or get out of your vehicle.
